We had workers turned away for being non-union

They are trying to bury it as much as possible but there were quite a few trucks who drove all the way from Alabama only to be sent back... some were able to go to another area to help but not all of them. It's ridiculous how much stuff gets complicated when the people are forced to surrender control of their recovery to any type of government agency. I absolutely hate FEMA with a passion after having to work with them when we had a huge tornado outbreak in April 2011 then again last January... if I never see them again it will be too soon. The disaster relief group I work with is sending trucks of supplies up there that we are going to try to get out to the people without FEMA's knowledge... it's the ONLY way you can make sure that EVERYONE is taken care of.
